    Rhymes With Geek - Mar 5, 2015

    In two issues Cluster has done everything I want in a comic.In two issues Cluster has done everything I want in a comic. It's set up a series of interesting characters in a bad situation and quickly made things worse. It's made me kind of like the jerks and hope things turn out ok for them. It's kept me on my toes with a lot of twists and I'm wondering who the good guys are in the end. The comic feels like someplace I haven't been before even though I recognize a lot of the elements it draws inspiration from I'm still having fun on the journey. I really hope this book succeeds and is around long enough to tell the story Brisson has in mind. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Mar 8, 2015

    The character work does a fine job investing the reader in the story. Every soldier has a voice, a reason for us to keep reading. Halleran, Grace, Samara and Slarreg are all unique and compelling in their own right, even when they teeter towards the edge of a clich. Much of their likability comes from Couceiros designs. His imagery brings the strange alien planet to life. Ultimately Cluster #2 demonstrates that Brisson, Couceiro and Garland have a lot more coming our way. Read Full Review

    This issue was a very interesting one, with more details being given about the characters past. As well as some mysteries that have yet to be brought to light. The art work is fantastic, and keeps giving me a nostalgic feeling like I've seen the style before. With its natural tones and dark lines, as well as its character designs, reminds me of the old Star Wars and X Men comics. At the end of this comic, you meet the leader of the rebels, Lustig, who I think is a dead ringer of Bishop from the X Men animated TV series. This is an issue not to be missed. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Mar 3, 2015

    This issue builds where it needed to, and develops some extra plot elements to add some deeper meaning to the plot. While it is deserving of some recognition for its story and characters, the overall effect is less than stellar. It is still a readable story, but is far from a standout in terms of the science fiction genre that is available on the market at the moment. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Daniel Coleman Mar 4, 2015

    The end of the issue is two flash backs to the first issue, this just felt jarring after the rest of the issue being on the prison planet. If this is the first issue someone picks up they'll be able to follow the gist of the on planet stuff. But the flashback at the end would confuse them or maybe entice is the right word?

    Bloody Disgusting - Eric Switzer Mar 4, 2015

    A book can be whatever kind of book it wants to be and I dont critique stories on their subject matter, only their execution. Ive never seen anything with this sort of confluence of light and heavy before and that could be part of my reason for rejecting it. It is too soon for me to say whether the book is trying something it shouldnt or not, but I can tell you it was off putting to me. In some ways I guess Im guilty of wanting my art in clearly defined categories. Cluster is a weird blend. A weird, weird blend. Read Full Review
